There is no command for this. :highlight just appends one more definition and :highlight clear can be used to reset all definitions.

It's easier with groups like Border because of their fixed name. But maybe we could update definition when pattern matches previous command. Vim also has:

:hi[ghlight] clear {group-name}
:hi[ghlight] {group-name} NONE
When asking, English language is preferred, but Russian, Ukrainian and maybe German can be used as well (in the last case answers might be in bad German).

If you would like to make a bug report or feature request consider using GitHub, SourceForge or e-mail. Posting such things here won't be considered as a spam, but this is not a perfect place for it.
